Welcome to the Y

WELCOME TO THE Y!

REAL-TIME BRANCH CAPACITY

General visits to workout in the fitness center do not require a reservation, however members are required to check-in to maintain an accurate capacity. The numbers show the percentage of members checked in to our facilities. As the number moves towards 100% it means there are more members in our Y relative to the total capacity.

For visits to the Berkeley Heights YMCA, please enter through the main front entrance.

For visits to the Summit YMCA, please enter through the back door (accessible via the parking lot near Cedar Street).

 
Branch capacity is also available via on the SAY Mobile App.
